“use it”

>My mom had showed me some weird shaped lemons from someones backyard that she stole. Way to go momma! She told me it looked weird and knowing me she knew that I would be all over it. I took it, held it on top my fingertips and slowly rotating it around as if i was taken by its resemblance to the folds on a brain. I looked to see that there was actually a whole bag. Looking for the best shape and best mental image of a brain, I had picked the perfect one.

I was babysitting at the time but it didn’t stop me from grabbing a pen to see if the quick sketches would actually help me visualize if it would be possible or not. since the lemon had a waxy coat i Erase the pen marks easily with a napkin when making a mistake. Once I started I became hesitant of how the folds on a brain actually formed. So l just went with it always keeping a mental image in my head the whole way through. Once I was satisfied with half of the lemon I knew to incorporate a divide between left and right hemisphere of the brain. And so i took the back pen and indented a little harder on the divide between the two sides. Once I established the divide I continued the other side but made sure to flip it so my right hand was always with the pen drawing. When it was done I made sure not to look at a lemon the same ever again.
